Alazar Haile, 1 Injured in Car Accident in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX -- October 10, 2022, Alazar Haile and another person were injured after an accident which may have involved alcohol.

Authorities said that the accident happened at around 3:41 a.m. along Plano Road at Forest Lane.

It appears that 50-year-old Alazar Tewolde Haile was in a Honda Accord traveling southbound on Plano Road. At Forest, an eastbound Dodge Ram allegedly went through a light and hit the Honda. Haile's vehicle then careened into a vehicle on northbound lanes.

Haile had incapacitating injuries while a passenger in the Dodge had non-incapacitating injuries. Police say they believe that the Dodge driver, identified as Jose Rodriguez Ledezma, had been drinking. Their statements include a .149 BAC test result. At this time, this and additional details remain unconfirmed.

Commentary on Alazar Haile Car Accident in Dallas

If it's true that alcohol was a factor in this crash, it's important to consider where that alcohol came from. As important as it is to ensure a drunk driver is held accountable, they often aren't the only ones to blame.

Simply put, Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Holding those businesses accountable is an effective way to get them to clean up their act while also providing a significant opportunity to get people the help they need.

However, that all remains unconfirmed right now, so it's important the crash is in the hands of professionals experienced with dram shop but prudent enough not to jump to conclusions until all the facts are clear.
